The theme of the show is about how our minds can be literal toilets, how we can ‘dump’ a lot of negativity within our mind. Sometimes we just need to find a way to flush it all out. There will even be a toilet you can write a little note in and flush down the loo with a pink brain.JEMIMASARA

About the artist
JEMIMASARA: a multi-disciplinary artist addressing self-expression and aspects of mental health. Her approach to drawing is enriched by a background in puppetry and plays on the fluidity of everyday life. Merging diaristic texts with the figurative, Jemima Sara’s practice derives meaning from the ‘nitty-gritty’ and day-to-day. Predominantly word and image, these pieces mostly need little explanation as they are, to some extent self-identifying. In recognition, the viewer is invited to question their response and positionality if they desire. In reflecting, confessing and revealing the struggles of daily life, her drawings ignite conversation as a form of self-therapy or so-called catharsis.
JEMIMASARA has exhibited her work in many solo and group shows including The South London Gallery x Camberwell, Copeland Gallery, The Square Gallery and has been featured in publications including Elle, The Evening Standard, Marie Claire, amongst others. www.jemimasara.co.uk
